Does melting the arctic ice lead to a rise in the sea level?

    Yes. Water is never destroyed it just changes forms. It can be found as ice, as liquid water, or water vapor. So when icebergs, glaciers, and the arctic shelf begin to melt that water must go somewhere and that somewhere is the oceans. The sea level has fluctuated a great deal through this process over thousands and millions of years. For example during the last ice age (when more water was trapped in arctic ice) the sea level was so low that people could walk from Russia to Alaska over land!
